Unless you know exactly what you want I tend to disagree with Cam and Faster. When we bought our boat we agreed to work with only one broker. He spent a good deal of time with us understanding our needs and expectations. For my part I had limited knowledge of the wide variety of boats available to us. Our broker was able to help us focus our search, suggesting some boats that I would not have otherwise considered while at the same time stearing us away from some that ultimately would not have been suitable for us. There were times that we would get caught up in the moment while looking at a boat and he would ask us questions that made me think is this really the right boat for us. Our broker may have been unique but he earned our trust and I don't think we would have gotten the same level of effort if we were just out there for every broker who had a listing.
